UK Crack Scientist : David Parker

David Parker is head of climate monitoring at the Hadley Centre.

In 2004, he has published a paper in Nature, showing that the urban heat island effect has not affected the historical temperature record

David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, says ultimately, British children could have only virtual experience of snow. Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes – or eventually “feel” virtual cold.

The National Weather Service has observed 7 to 13 degrees UHI effect in Phoenix, but David Parker says that doesn’t influence the temperature record.

The average minimum May temperature at the urban locations displayed an apparent upward increase through the time series (1910 through 2000), which was attributed to the urban growth of the region. By the end of the series, there was a +4 to 7 ºC (7 to 13 ºF) difference between the urban minimum temperatures and the rural minimum temperatures.

    I was always told that any job title with the word monitoring in it was not a real job.

    • I was always told any job title with the word climate in it was not a real job!

        You enter the laboratory and see an experiment. How will you know which class it is?
        If it’s green and wiggles, it’s biology.
        If it stinks, it’s chemistry.
        If it doesn’t work, it’s climate science.

    I guess in the UK, ‘crack scientist’ means a scientist that is on crack.

    I thought it was Viner who said snowfall (in the UK) was a thing of the past. It doesn’t really matter, as whoever said was clearly wrong.

    Multiple people, you are probably right Steve. I wonder if we ever get an apology from these “scientists”.
    I doubt it.

      As mankind survives thanks to the carbon cycle, the most efficient way to achieve a “low carbon economy” would be to kill off most of the human population.
      Gotta stop that climate change… right ?
      This political/science scam is insane.
